Danish Kaneria requests PM Sharif to get life-ban removed

Pakistan’s leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has requested the Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif to intervene against what he calls as an ‘illegal match-fixing ban’ imposed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The Pakistani leg-spinner was quoted saying,

The ECB has banned me from playing cricket in England based on the mere false statements of the convicted English Country cricketer, Mervyn Westfield.

He also added, “All convicted cricketers (Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir) are slowly and steadily allowed to play domestic and international cricket, even the ECB has allowed Mervyn Westfield to play professional cricket in (the) UK."

Kaneria was accused of being involved in a spot-fixing scandal during England’s domestic Pro40 match in 2009. He was banned for prompting Essex teammate Westfield into spot fixing.
